Default resoultion through xbox 360 (again)

I formally apologize if I am beating a dead horse, but I have not found the definintie answer I am looking for...

I play my premium 360 with a 61" Smasung 1080p DLP. I have the display set at 1080p and everything looks good, games and HD-DVD, but is this actually 1080p? I keep hearing its only 1080i without the elite HDMI or VGA. Is this true?

I'm guessing you're using component cables? If so, then the highest you can go is 1080i.

Yes, from everything I've read, that is true.

TRUE

Also, even though your TV displays 1080p, that doesn't mean it accepts 1080p through component. You'll have to check your manual/specs to find out for sure.

Trade in your 360 for the Elite.

When I had my Xbox 360 Premium hooked up to my Sharp AQUOS with the component the dashboard would show as 1080P. Now when I watched an HD-DVD the display would go 1080i. As for the games, you can view their capable resolution on the back next to the space required and such. Haven't run across but one or two games that actually support 1080P. Can't recall what they were not though.

Hope that helps some... Got rid of the 360 and was going to go for the PS3 when I say that most PS3 games are rendered at 720P as well...

You can order a transfer cable from Microsoft so that you can move your data off the 20GB drive and onto the Elite HDD.

It's a pretty simple process. Just be aware that it doesn't transfer license data. So you will have to be connected to Live to play full versions of arcade games bought with your non-elite console.
